I DID NOT UPLOAD THIS.

This is a good TV series, way better than that overrated peice of crap known as Life on Mars.

Either way, this is classic TV so good that even you might enjoy it, since it's rather ephemeral yet timeless at the same time. Basically, the panel must guess the occupation of the guests. Later in the program, they are blindfolded and must guess the celebrity guest. It's all very 50's and classy and smart and good and worth watching.

Trivia: Much of the first two seasons of "What's My Line" were destroyed by CBS, but by the 3rd season Goodson-Todman productions requested a kinescope of each episode.

Subject: episode with ads is especially entertaining (Bette Davis bonus)
a real time capsule...the ads are worth watching as much as the show. Love Bette Davis, who is not hesitant to inform everyone that she is "over 40". These WML shows are always fun to watch because of the bantering of the panelists with the emcee. Wish more episodes were available.
